Pfizer Renews Subscription to GeneLogic s ToxExpress Database, Adds ToxShield

NEW YORK, Aug. 11 (GenomeWeb News) - Pfizer has renewed its subscription to Gene Logic's ToxExpress database of gene expression profiles and clinical data, Gene Logic said yesterday.

 

In addition, Pfizer has subscribed to Gene Logic's ToxShield software for assessing and ranking drug candidates based on their potential toxicity in humans.

 

Gene Logic also provides microarray services to Pfizer -- a program launched in March -- to determine potentially toxic effects of novel compounds on tissues of interest.

 

Pfizer has been a subscriber to Gene Logic's ToxExpress database since February 2000. Its renewed subscription runs for three years.

 

The companies did not disclose the financial terms of the subscriptions.
